I am SO impressed with this toner! I have very dry, sensitive skin and I'm in my 40's, so moisture is my best friend. The light moisture that this adds is so subtle and smooth, but it definitely does add moisture. My skin feels 5 years younger immediately! Its got a nice light scent that dissipates as soon as it dries so you don't feel like you've perfumed your face. I will absolutely keep this as a part of my daily routine.

Tried a sample. Seems nice, but I'm not sure it does much. Skin soaks it up and doesn't break me out, but once it sinks to my skin I can barely tell I used it. I'd say it's lightly moisturizing. Might be better suited for combo to oily skin?

Your review touches on something important about hydrating toners. They aren't usually intended to be stand-alone moisturizers, and most Asian beauty fans use them as a booster between cleansing and serum/moisturizing products. If you still have part of your sample left, try applying your serum or moisturizer immediately after applying the SanDaWha product. It helps serums absorb better, and your moisturizer should keep your skin feeling comfortable longer. :)

Totally, that's why I always test new products along my with my full routine and I like to use a moisture meter for less subjective observation. I do enjoy other products from this brand, however this one is just a little lacking for me.

Great point! Out of curiosity, what are your favorite SanDaWha products?

The camellia mild cleansing oil is quite nice, the camellia hydrating mist works well over my makeup, and most recently I fell in love with the camellia face oil (just posted a review on it). I think I must have a thing for camellia;)

After months of wanting to try and review this product, I finally got my hands on it ! I love love love love the Liposome Skin Softener. After double cleansing this product really brings my skin alive. It instantly moisturize, smells amazing and absorbs beautifully into the skin. I give this product a 10/10

This Liposome skin softener is deliciously moisturizing. The texture is light, viscose and very rejuvenating. Application is creamy and so smooth it applies beautifully and leaves my skin so soft and supple, its like a dream. There is no real scent to be detected, which I like. But it also doesn't have that odd scent to it that I find with many of the "unscented" products I've tried. Its very gentle and soothes my firy combo skin.

Using the sample, I will always be down for a toner, and this one did not disappoint. I liked the feeling of my skin feeling hydrated and restored, especially after using the cleansing oil and mild cleanser also from SanDaWha. This may be a new favorite for me!

Man do I love this brand. This toner is perfect for all skin types and has over 30 herbal extracts and oils! With that in mind, it still has a lightweight feel while soothing my skin.

beautiful lightweight toner that does so much!! balance, smooth, hydrate, and protect from free radicals & environmental aggressors. I like the texture, since it is not heavy at all despite everything it does. Can recommend for normal/dry/combo skin types.

My go-to night time toner. This is a power packed toner with ingredients like Licorice Extract, Camellia Flower Extract, Centella Asiatica, and over 30 herbal extract and oils which is a dream blend for hydrating, brightening and soothing. What more can you ask for?

Nice, light product. Great for all skin types. Instant calming and absorbs very quickly. I tried it with my hands and a cotton ball and actually preferred using my hands to pat it in. Worth trying for such a reasonable price!

Sandawha is a great brand for those looking to try out K Beauty for the first time. They offer every product you need for a balanced skincare regimen and the skin softener is GREAT. I apply it and allow it to penetrate the skin for a few minutes before following up with a moisturizer. I find this leaves my skin smoother and less patchy when applying makeup afterward and I also love the way it feels on my face at night prior to going to bed. This brand is very mild and is safe for sensitive skin, as well. Read more
